The overriding goal of Residential Services is to provide an environment that can be tailored to meet the needs of each individual.
Specific goals for each individual are developed in a team meeting and documented in the individual's service plan. With the individual's permission, parents and family members are always encouraged to be an active part of the planning process. Residential Services are billable to Home and Community-Based Waiver.
The following services are offered:
Congregate Residential Services for adults 18 years and older are available in five to seven group homes throughout Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck. Homes consist of four or five individuals with developmental disabilities, as well as highly trained staff who support their needs. Each group home provides 24-hour supervision, assistance, and training to residents.
In-Home Residential Support Services can be provided for children in their family's home and to individuals living in their own homes or apartments. In-home support is available to people who live independently, but need assistance and training with certain aspects of daily living.
